Latest DVD Reviews: Dead Heads, more heads, Top 10 of 2011 & B-movie brilliance

16 Jan

Happy New Year! (I realise I’m a little late – what can I say? I’ve been enjoying my New Year far too much).

To kick things off, here are my most recent DVD reviews and features for Chris and Phil Present which, for one reason or another, I never got round to blogging about before the holidays – So in case you haven’t had a nosy yet, here they are:

Up first, Dead Heads – “Starring a relatively unknown cast, this indie horror comedy dares to tread where few have done before (only Wasting Away comes to mind), in that the film is shot from the zombie’s POV. An interesting concept sure, but perhaps the lack of movies out there dabbling with this notion is so for a very good reason.”

 

 

Then onto a bizarre action flick starring Samuel L Jackson and the brutish-looking Cullen Vamp from the Twilight films, Arena – “Sometimes when given a preposterously bad script, absurd delivery is the only way forward. Cue forced, pantomime-baddie, evil laughs.”

 

 

Up next, my Top 10 Films of 2011 – which I won’t spoil for you on here, have a look and let me know what you think. Also check out the Top 10 lists by other writers on there – it’s fascinating to see such a wide variety of titles included, ranging from mainstream blockbusters to foreign language arthouse films.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally, I was given an absolute corker of a DVD review (about time!) in the form of B-movie absurdity Sand Sharks – I’ll post a link up to it once it’s gone live on the C&P Present site, so keep an eye out for it.

*update* Sand Sharks review is now live!

    Since you “dug” SAND SHARKS, you might enjoy another 2011 production from some of the same players …DRAGON CRUSADERS, it doesn’t have sharks in the sand but it does have Knights Templar, Singing, Witches, Martial Arts, Gargoyles, Dragons, Panto Pirates and conspicuous homages to Time Bandits and the Wizard of Oz. Need I mention more? DRAGON CRUSADERS premieres in the UK on the Syfy Channel, this Sunday Jan 22, at 8 pm.
